Why Hors d’oeuvres benefit you and your guests

Next time you plan to entertain a group of guests for a big dinner or a barbecue, here’s a crucial tip if you do not know this already: Have hors d’oeuvres or appetizers ready before your guests show up.  Here are a couple reasons why:

REASON #1: Your guests won’t go hungry.  Having a little something to munch on before the big meal keeps everyone’s hunger temporarily at bay and prevents any anxiety that can come with waiting for the main course to finish cooking.  That way, instead of constantly wondering “where’s the food?”, your guests will be happily enjoying themselves and one another before dinner.

REASON #2: It frees you up and relieves you of stress.  You now have more time to make sure everything is done right without the added need to rush to feed your guests on time.  With your guests distracted by your appetizers, you can fully concentrate on the food you’re preparing without having to answer “in 10 minutes!” or “in 15 minutes!” every 5 seconds to that one dreaded question that we all love to ask when we get hungry: “Is dinner ready?!”

The best part is that appetizers are simple for the most part and can be done fairly quickly and easily.  You can either make something on your own or buy something ready-made like chips, cheese and cracker trays, or veggie platters.  Plus they are simply a delicious addition to any event!  Just remember to be careful not to make too much or else your guests will fill up on hors d’oeuvres while leaving no room for the main event!
